COVID Protocols for Your Safety

We Care about Your Health and Keeping You Safe

The Food Safety Consortium/Cannabis Quality Conference, is dedicated to keeping you safe as we embark in this renewed process of getting back together in hotels spaces. As part of our commitment to your safety, we have done a lot of work in preparation to welcoming you to our first in person event, after these past two years.

In preparation, we have:
Polled our audience on their comfort level about attending In person events
75% (?) of our respondents said that they would feel comfortable attending in person events IF:
They didn’t have to travel/ board a plane to arrive at conference location
They were within driving distance of destination
Did not need overnight at a hotel

With some of those responses in mind, we have scheduled our event at a centralized location, that can be easily reached via driving or a quick train ride. For those who are comfortable flying, we are also easily accessible to all NYC airports (within 30 minutes)

We will also be conducting daily kitchen inspections with one of our Food Safety Inspectors to ensure we are all healthy!

Our hotel location offers participants plenty of free parking and outdoor space, as well as the following precautions:

  • No table linens at any of our meeting rooms
  • Individualized water station to minimize contact
  • Buttlered coffee stations to minimize contact
  • Individualized meals (grab and go)
  • Hotel offers PURE rooms that are equipped with air purifiers and are allergen free
  • Hand sanitizer stations throughout the facility
  • We will provide face masks for all participants that desire them
  • We will also provide individual hand sanitizers with each registration

We look forward to getting together in person once again!
